Soccer, Parade, Carpets, and Blessings

November 8, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

This morning was Josiah’s last soccer game for the season.  The boys had a great season winning more games than they lost, but no-one keeps score, yeah right!  Anyhow, today they lost in a big way.  I don’t even think the Hawks scored.  But all the boys seemed to have fun.  After the game the team met at McDonald’s to eat, play, and receive their trophy.  They don’t make trophies like they used to!!!  Joes trophy is awesome.

From there we headed over to the Frisco Homecoming Parade.  This was Jackson’s first parade and the first one that Josiah remembers.  Both boys were wide-eyed as the parade started.  We had fun as a family just being able to relax and the weather was awesome!!!

I finished all the carpets today also!  But the real surprise and blessing came at 3:45 today.  Words can’t really express our gratitude to the people of Grace and how God used them to bless us.  Today we were given a gift that will help cover some of the expenses we have accumulated because of all of Jackson’s medical needs.  We have been praying for these things here for a while now. God has been so faithful to us and He used people we know and people we don’t know to show us how big He is, and to remind us that we are not alone in this journey!  Thank you Jesus!!!

    From my experience, they keep an unofficial score so that they can match up teams better the next season. That keeps the really good teams from playing a season full of teams that can barely kick the ball. Wouldn’t you rather your kiddo played against a team that was at a similar skill level?
